Nisa

Today Nisa is a £1.45 billion turnover company which exists to provide benefits to approx. 1,300 retailers, operating almost 3,500 stores, and provides every service that an independent needs to survive and grow in the grocery marketplace.

Over the years, Nisa has ensured the prosperity of thousands of retailers and with its renewed focus on the consumer now seeks to provide greater means to achieve success. Nisa has developed exponentially in the 41 years since it was established. In May 2018 the Co-op completed its acquisition of Nisa Retail Limited. The wholesale operation will provide an environment in which independent retailers can flourish. It brings enhanced buying capability, allowing Nisa Partners to trade their businesses in the way they choose, backed by competitive prices and promotions with access to a deeper range including a wide selection of Co-op’s award-winning, high-quality own brand products across all categories.

 

Vetshare

VetShare was founded to create a buying group that truly serves the needs of independent vets.

Previous owners, Wayne and Ruth Gray had recognized as practice owners themselves, the pressure that was upon independent practices to deliver and sustain a fair and competitive service to clients that didn't impact upon margins or take them away from running a practice.

However, they didn’t want to join a buying group with overblown fees and hidden costs – which was all they could find. So, VetShare was created: a straightforward, fair vet business group which puts the requirements of its members above all else.

Affinity Groups

Our specialist team works closely with affinity groups, member organisations and franchise businesses: from local retail networks and financial services to housing associations and community groups. 

We also work nationwide with indirect agents, who connect us with their customers and other local businesses.

You can offer the whole energy market to your members or network – bringing them the buying muscle of a major player, the best overall prices plus special services they can’t get anywhere else.

We are as flexible as you need us to be, whatever the type of organisation or sector: providing branded low cost energy and own-brand tariffs, helping you to help other businesses to achieve real energy savings and avoid unnecessary costs. 

Our value-added products and services mean you can offer more, helping you develop deeper and “stickier” relationships: you can strengthen your status and market presence by dual branding, with your name appearing on bills. 

An introducers’ fee is payable on all contracts awarded.
